GETTIN’ RID OF GOPHERS
Sissy here. Jonesy, Tinky and I woke up at the crack of dawn on Sunday. I Scratched and licked, Jonesy fidgeted and Tinky walked all over mom until she woke up. She made us all some yummy breakfast of chicken, brown rice, green beans and kibble. Yum yum.
After that we all headed outdoors as it was a beautiful Sunday morning. After sniffing around for privacy (you know what I mean), we all scampered around the back yard and chased each other. We played with our toys and gnawed on some bones. What a dog’s life.
Now we’re just taking a break.
Can you see that there are two gopher holes to my left? There is a pesky gopher that mom keeps chasing all over the yard. She has been trying to get rid of that gopher for about 2 months. She said that the gopher can ruin the yard for all she cares, she is not going to pay a pest exterminator $125.00 to come over and get that thing. She has tried to kill it with these things that looks like dynamite sticks. She lights them and puts them in the hole. One time it smoked so bad that I started to choke. That didn’t work! The next thing she tried is putting the hose deep down inside the gopher hole and tried to drown it out. Mom thought she got rid of it until it popped back up about 10 days later. Then she bought some stuff for the lawn that is supposed to make them run away. We’ll see.
So for right now, I am keeping my eyeballs on those gopher holes. I can’t wait until a gopher pops his head up and BAM…I got him!
If it isn’t squirrels, it’s gophers. Does anyone have any ideas for mom to get rid of that pesky gopher? Hey Rusty, how do you chase a gopher?
